Should prisoners get the vote?

Stats say that 1% of the 85,000 (roughly) prisoners are innocent, AND  10% have not have a trial.

It is a basic human right to vote. Prisoneres are already kept in dull rooms on their own all day, so it's not justified to deny them the vote to decide who runs the country. This is also really important because whoever runs the country is also in charge of all the prisons in the country.

Side: yes

Since a prisoner can get a college degree, I see no reason why a prisoner should not be allowed to vote.

Screw that! We're not a democracy... we're a republic, a nation of laws... they broke the law so they shouldn't be allowed to vote.

Side: No
